Re: sakoku ?

i don't think the 2 overlap. you're talking about the fundamentals of trad japanese food being grown overseas ( approaching hysteria with poisoned gyoza from china etc) whereas what i'm saying is that real-tokyo feels more and more like berlin or nyc in terms of the choices of eating out)

Re: sakoku ?

But you're saying that the main difference from the 90s is that real foreigners are making the food -- in other words that immigration has loosened up?

Re: sakoku ?

i guess so , also that you have more pockets of real foreign culture rather than the sublimated cultural artifacts of the 90s -- and i guess marxy's spiel on class takes my point to a loftier place
